If you or your mindful giftees prefer to unwrap well-crafted, locally-made, socially-conscious goods, here's another pop-up to add to your holiday hit list. Now through next Sunday, December 27th, roving pop-up shop Merican Made is making its first-ever LA stop at cool Abbot Kinney menswear boutique Milkmade.
Pick up merch from a top-notch roster of Cali-based Stateside brands, including mystical accoutrements by Androgyny Designs, jewelry from Chocolate and Steel, upcycled clothing from Taxi CDC, leather goods from Dean Accessories, stationery from Graphic Anthology, charming planters from Kelso Doesn't Dance, and wooden and bamboo eyewear from Kahoy Kollection. Repping Detroit and Chicago are basics brand Detroit Hustles Harder, men's undies brand Mr. + Muse, and reclaimed wood furniture and decor company Woodward Throwbacks.
That's not all: a portion of sales will benefit nonprofit orgs Wags and Walks, TreePeople, Born and Raised Detroit, and Playworks. (Nice.) The pop-up's open Monday through Saturday from 11am to 7pm and Sunday from 12 to 6pm; plus, swing by today and next Thursday from 4 to 7pm and enjoy free bubbly while you shop.
